no Video processor on any core iCPU is up to the performance level of the APUs.

Amd makes 3 65 watt trinitys (locked)

Buy AMD ram and get amd unlimited ram disk included>>free

The trick is to get it to boot from the ram disk.

which i3 + GPUS give the same VIDEO performance as a10-5700 with hd 6670 & the a10without th hd 6670?

I am going put one these in my mATX case with the optional hd 6670.

It will probable that it be will a Asus board because the turboV is the neatest thing since sliced bread on a Sabertooth, IMO. Of couse it will be a K cpu

what I ment

i3 + gpu X = Trinity + O gpu


i3 + gpu X = Trinity + hd6670

Trying to figure that out gave me a headache

BTW 960T@4.0Ghz + 7870 beats the i3 + 7850, for most video games. It may not do as well with single thread but I get 60fps @1080p with all the goodys maxed with Mass Effect 1. I am not sure how many cores that game uses. The CPU has to phyicsX with that game also.

Remember there aint no i3K!

The 960T is getting replaced Thursday by a FX-8350.

I was going to go i5 last July but I decided do 7870 instead. Was not disappointed. As for the things the 8350 does not do so well, I just go pour a cup of coffee and sip for a few seconds as the results come in. The trick is pouring the coffee real fast without spilling it.:toast:
